Parish History

According to the following 1848 written treatise on this parish, from the Topographical Dictionary of England, the article incorrectly ascribes the ancient parish of Tottenham as being dedicated with the name, All Saints. This mistake is also repeated in the Imperial Gazetteer of England published in about the year 1870. The name by which it is known and dedicated to, today is: All Hallows. It appears that this church was never offically called by nor dedicated with the name of 'All Saints'. Here's a list of the other chapels lying within the parish boundary of  Tottenham All Hallows:

  • Christ Church, West Green - 1889
  • Holy Trinity, High Cross - 1828
  • St Andrew's Mission- 1910
  • St Ann, Stamford Hill - 1861
  • St Bartholomew Stamford Hill - 1895
  • St Benet Fink, Walpole Rd - 1912
  • St Cuthbert, Wood Green - 1902
  • St Gabriel, Bounds Green St John, Brook Road - 1906
  • St Johns Mission Church, Wood Green - 1866
  • St John the Divine, Varty Road, Stamford Hill - 1886
  • St Luke, Tottenham -
  • St Mark, Noel Park, Wood Green - 1885
  • St Mary the Virgin, Lansdowne Rd - 1882
  • St Michael, Wood Green - 1865
  • St Patrick's Mission - 1909
  • St Paul, Park Lane - 1859
  • St Peter, Page Green - 1883
  • St Philip the Apostle - 1898


'TOTTENHAM [All Hallows], a parish, [by 1557] in the union and hundred of Edmonton, County of Middlesex, 4 miles north and east of London.

'A district church dedicated to the Holy Trinity, in the later English style, with turrets at each angle, and pinnacles over the aisles, was erected in 1829 on Tottenham Green, by aid of the Parliamentary Commissioners and by subscription: the living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £309; patron, the Vicar.

'A church was consecrated at Wood-Green in October 1844; it is in the early English style, and has accommodation for 200 persons. There are places of worship for Baptists, the Society of Friends, Independents, Wesleyans, and Roman Catholics.'[1]
